Homemade Salsa:

  • Ingredients:  about 12 roma tomatoes, 5 jalepenos, 5 fresno peppers, 5 or 6 habenero peppers, and 1 clove of garlic with the top sliced off.
  • Preheat over to 400.
  • Place parchment paper over a cooking sheet.
  • Place all the ingredients onto the cooking sheet and use a brush to coat a small amount of olive oil over all the veggies.
  • Bake for approximately 45-60 minutes or until done.
  • Let the veggies cool down.
  • Cut stems of peppers off as well as the top part of the tomato and place in food processor.
  • Dig the garlic out of the casing as well and place in the food processor.
  • Add a small amount of chicken broth and mix well.

Note:  Some people like to peel the skin off of the peppers and tomatoes, but I like to leave them on to get that burnt flavor.
